"Way Beyond the West" (Alan Watts audio)

Alan Watts ("Way Beyond the West,", BB0527.01), Roy Tuckman (; Ashley Wells, Dhr. Seven, CC Liu, Wisdom Quarterly
The "Way" (Tao) of the Dharma runs counter to the Way of the World (Danielina-79)
What is the Tao, Zen Master? "Zen Cartoons" by Satajan (via voiceofhappiness)

Alan Watts, the British-born teacher, philosopher, and Zen Buddhist who came to California and joined Pacifica Radio in Berkeley to make history also had a TV show, "Way Beyond the West." Pacifica Los Angeles (KPFK 90.7 FM) is now the only station that regularly carries him. Alan Watts did more than any other Westerner of his day to present authentic Eastern Philosophy to a Western audience.

Watts is an inspiration to Wisdom Quarterly because few others understand that it is not only the Buddha's Dharma that gets imported when Westerners try to learn about "Buddhism." A great deal of Hinduism (particularly as it serves as the framework of populist Mahayana Buddhism), Brahmanism, Taoism, animism, shamanism, Shintoism, Confucianism, Jainism, martial arts, ancestor worship, kami- and hungry ghost-lore does, too.
